We at Calm Up are going to give you some tips!
Tip #1: Journaling
Journaling is a great way to help elevate your calm. One way you can journal is that you can do a “brain dump” every morning and or night. You can do it in a special little journal or even just on a piece of paper. This is when you just let all your feelings out. You can set a timer and just write whatever you want down for 5 minutes or longer if needed. This way it can help you release what you are feeling: the good, the bad, the ugly. Let it all out. Trust us, it will make you feel a lot better and lighter. Less stale weight will be on your shoulders. This may be the perfect exercise for you if you find it hard to talk about your feelings to someone else.
Another take on journaling could be following prompts online or buy a journal with prompts written in it. There are a bunch of different kinds you can follow. A great step to add to your morning routine would be to show gratitude. For example, it would go something like this: Today I am grateful for: then you list three things. Next, I am looking forward to: then you list another three things. Then if you are into positive affirmations you could write and say out loud 3 affirmations. Then at night, when you are winding down right before bed you can write in your journal your favorite part of the day. That’s all! All it takes is 5 minutes to help boost your mood and begin and end your day on a positive note.
If you are looking for some options you can get inspiration from “The Five-Minute Journal” that can be found on Amazon. Or if you just want to create your own grab some paper or a blank notebook and write your own prompts. You can even search on Google “journal prompts” to help you get started. Baby steps like adding this to your morning and night routine will only help elevate your calm, not harm. We at Calm Up believe finding your calm can be found in many different ways the matter is that you just have to be open in putting in some effort that will benefit you in the long run.
